Famous quotes containing the word part:

    Had she come all the way for this,
    To part at last without a kiss?

    Beside the haystack in the floods?
    William Morris (1834–1896)

    And shall the earth
    Seem all of paradise that we shall know?
    The sky will be much friendlier then than now,
    A part of labor and a part of pain,
    And next in glory to enduring love,
    Not this dividing and indifferent blue.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
